I am buying residence in Petersham. My lawyer has never been on on the lender solicitor panel. Am I still permitted to continue with my Petersham conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender approved list?
You will need to use a conveyancer to deal with the legal work required if you take out a mortgage to purchase your home. They will conduct all the relevant due diligence on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is dealt with. One may instruct a Petersham solicitor of your choice. Nevertheless, where the conveyancer selected is not on the lender conveyancing panel further charges will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the mortgage company. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so if your lawyer has not in the past sought membership they should take the opportunity to apply.
In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Petersham? What am I being asked for?
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Petersham conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill showing where you reside.
In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are obliged by law to ascertain not simply the ID of conveyancing clients but also the origin of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. Refusal to disclose this will lead to your lawyer cancelling their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your conveyancers will have an obligation to notify the appropriate authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.
